    M1 15K Oil

    Is it ok if I use this oil in my car. I already use the normal M1 synthetic. Also with this oil is it ok for the car to change every 5K? or even possibly 10K? I know it says 15K but I would change the oil earlier.

    Thanks

    Stick to normal M1. You don't need the Extended performance, and it is not a Subaru approved fluid whereas the normal M1 is.

    Your oil needs to be GF-4/SM

    Mobil 1 Extended Performance contains an extra performance additive to help deliver exceptional performance and protection. This fully synthetic technology is designed specifically for longer service intervals. Appropriate viscosities of Mobil 1 Extended Performance also meet all the requirements for GF-4. Additionally, they exceed the requirements of API SL/CF and various ACEA (European) specifications. (Updated March 2006)
    Read this:

    at bottom:

    Summary:
    Use a GF4/SM oil if you have a 2006 or later Subaru
    change your oil at 3750 miles
    use synthetic if you want

    List of GF-4 (or SM) approved oils:
    Castrol Syntec 5w30
    Redline Synthetic 5w30
    Pennzoil Platinum 5w30
    Mobil1 (classic, non-supersyn) 5w30

    What is NOT GF-4 (or SM) approved?
    -Royal Purple
    -Motul
    -Mobil1 SuperSyn
